Facilities and Maintenance - Voluntary Lead Testing Program
In 2017, the Alabama Department of Environmental Management, in conjunction with the Alabama State Department of Education recommended implementing a voluntary lead testing program in the State's Pre-K thru 12 schools. This program was proposed in order to promote public confidence and to help schools minimize their student's and staff's exposure to possible high levels of lead in drinking water.
Results of the voluntary lead testing results will be posted as soon as they become available. This process is expected to take 2 years to complete testing on all Shelby County Schools.
